Next to the VMware View 5.1.2 release, they’ve also updated their VMware View Client to version 1.7. There are new clients for Windows, Mac, Linux, Android and also Windows Store as already mentioned in my article from last Friday.
What’s new with the clients?
The View Client for Windows (5.2) which was already released in October 2012 brought support for Windows 8 and Uniform Resource Identifiers.
For the Mac users VMware has a special! As the first vendor VMware now supports USB redirection from a MacOS system to the Windows virtual desktop.
The Linux client now uses FreeRDP when connecting via RDP to a desktop, there’ve been also improvements with USB redirection.
